@ [anyone]

Guys, I've never been to New York myself (only been to Tokyo once) but my dad who has been to both [New York and Tokyo] said that New York pales in comparison to Tokyo. Was he exaggerating, or is it really true?

If he wasn't, how come a recent list of the world's largest urban agglomerations by GDP (PPP) only puts Greater Tokyo slightly ahead of New York Tri-State Area?

Here's the top 10 urban areas in that list:
1. Tokyo US$ 1.191 trillion
2. New York US US$ 1.133 trillion

3. Los Angeles US$ 639 billion
4. Chicago US$ 460 billion
5. Paris US$ 460 billion
6. London US$ 452 billion
7. Osaka/Kobe US$ 341 billion
8. Mexico City US$ 315 billion
9. Philadelphia US$ 312 billion
10. Washington D.C.-Baltimore Metroplex US$ 299 billion

Well, it's pretty obvious that there are way more high rises than NY, infact, any large asian city does. But NY is really just using its fame to sell stuff if you know what i mean-people would automatically claim NY to have the greatest skyline simply because........ IT'S NY!! It's like people worship famous brand LV simply because it's LV! Do i sound comfusing??
